Hopefully you luck out and the weather changes.
Forecast is for 10-20% rain.
I am bringing with me a set of sticker MPSS, but helpfully I can try my set from Saturday.

And today I found out why. My ESS intake manifold lifted in the rear of the engine and basically I was running no boost with the penalty of the extra weight.

This will be addressed tomorrow at the Little Speed Shop at The Glen.

I am heading out to WGI tonight, on a trailer, and made an 8am appointment for them to push it back down.
Congrats on finding the issue!

Quick update.
The Little Speed Shop at the Glen took me in at 8am.
Tech has E90 M3 and knew what to do.
By 10am or so the intake manifold was reinstalled and the car was good to go.

It was glorious for 4 laps and I lost the boost.

Did another session and called it a day. The trumpet boots are too old to hold the manifold down.

On Thu ACM will be installing a new boot set and also the tie down kit if easy to install.

I sure hope the car would be ready with both, the rebuilt JRZs and a Supercharge that works. It would be nice to have both motor and suspension working together for a change.

Next week is 3 days at WGI with a Porsche club. I definitely don't want to be limping.

Oh, the quicksand of motorsports. Always something.

Not sure what your tie down kit looks like, but the G-Power kit uses three fairly simple bent sheet metal brackets, 2 in the front and 1 at the rear.
The brackets make sense to me.
That way the hose clamps don't have double duty and can just take care of the sealing chore.
We don't want our plenums getting launched into the hood.

I can't believe these don't come with the stock install. Seems sloppy on their part.

Autocouture to the rescue again.
New boots and tie downs.

So last year I was driving with broken compression shim in the front and broke rebound shim in the rear.

This year so far I was driving with fixed dampers and broken boost.

This coming week, 5/11 @ NYST, unless I find yet another thing broken or not working would be the first trackday with both power and suspension.

Weather looks perfect.

Then I trailer to WGI for 3 days with a Porsche club.

Feeling good about my M3, I took the John Deer out and went to cut the grass for the first time.

After 5 minutes the blower that suck the grass clipping into the rear bags made a terrible noise. It seized. Took it a part and the bearing was in pieces.

Took it a part and will have to deal with it later.

For a compute person I feel like the physical world is ganging up on me.
